Bottega Veneta was launched as a family business of luxury leather accessories in Venice back in 1966, and today designs both a men’s and women’s ready-to-wear line.
German-born Tomas Maier took the helm in 2001 and revived the flagging brand by injecting a more modern feel and reworking the traditional woven leather signature.
At $3,000 a pop for a bag, expect to see classic clean lines, the softest leathers, and a classic palette rather than trend-driven designs. Bottega is most known for its hand-woven leather bags, belts, and shoes. Maier’s ready-to-wear women’s line posses the same timeless, ultra-luxurious look.
Worn by ladies who know fashion and who buy to archive, including Nicole Kidman, Scarlett Johansson, and Sarah Jessica Parker.
